I have a bachelor's degree in Political Science, and a Juris Doctor degree. I firmly believe every student is capable of excelling in any subject area. It is merely a question of finding one's own approach to learning, discipline, and practice. This mentality is what got me through being admitted to and graduating from UCLA, and most recently, law school. I am very passionate about learning, and enjoy working with students from all walks of life. Most recently, I studied for the California Bar Exam, a grueling 2-month process of studying at least 9 hours a day, 6-7 days a week. This experience taught me the importance of identifying the best way to learn a specific subject. I had to teach myself certain subjects and in doing so, refined the use of various studying strategies. During my academic experience in law school, I developed a curriculum for students that contributed to being selected as 1 of 15 scholarship recipients in the State of California through the California Bar foundation. Additionally, I tutored for Torts, where I created midterm and final review examinations for students. I have in depth understanding of essay writing in English and in Spanish, and feel very comfortable tutoring in Political Science, English, Spanish Language and Literature, and History. My experience ranges from high school students, college students, and law students. I follow the Freirian approach where the students are actively engaged in the discussion. Through this process the students are able to refine their critical thinking skills, and master the concepts they are learning. I look forward to meeting you!
